I'm a massage therapist located in Berkeley, CA. With over 20 years in the Bay Area, & I'm passionate about providing caring and compassionate services to everyone - without any judgment. I've maintained a special focus on the Gay and LGBTQ communities, and I believe that everyone deserves to feel cared for. With over 20 years of experience working with bodies, I'm confident that I can provide you with a massage experience like no other.

With a focus... on providing a unique personalized experience, I take the time to understand your specific needs and create a custom session for you. This will be done over a brief phone conversation, before booking your first session. Relaxation massage is my specialty, blending the techniques of Swedish, Deep Tissue, Reflexology, and additional methods.

My life story involves a journey with Cancer, & multiple major physical traumas, which resulted in 6 surgeries. Those challenges have informed my bodywork with a high level of compassion & understanding for dealing with pain, trauma, body issues & recovery. So for me, even being able-bodied to give a massage is a gift, and I'm always happy to share the benefits of massage with new people and friends a like :)
I look forward to connecting and helping you feel refreshed and revitalized! Bless~

My Massage with Leo was the best thing that had happened to me this year. I wanted someone who would talk to me, and listen to me before the session. This made all the difference since I could feel that I was engaging with a person with whom I could connect before getting on the massage table. The massage was really therapeutic and healing, and I felt great after. I am most certainly going to go again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Leo was great from the moment I reached out. He was super responsive and helped me quickly schedule an appointment. The massage therapy session itself was wonderful too. I was able to give him an idea of what I wanted and he intuitively found the right combination of techniques for my specific needs. The place was also clean, welcoming, and full of uplifting energy. Leo is a great find!

Leo is a Master at bodywork. was very good at knowing the Muscular and Anatomy of the body well, to work on what mattered most. I arrived very sore at his Studio and felt so very Good for some days afterward which says alot!!. He is a great Guy. Loves to talk and is so very intuned with the client at all times asking if everything feels ok.. He is a very nice person. I can't wait to see him again. ~~Thank you Leo

It is hard to describe this experience in words. From the initial contact to the completion it was a destination spa experience. Leo likes to have a call to discuss your needs and expectations. He is one of the most professional masseurs I have met. When you meet him you have already made a connection. He gives one of the best massages that I have experienced. The touch of his hands are as warm as his heart. You can feel his heart and soul in his touch - he fully understands your body and needs. He is a conversationalist and is so easy to talk with. If you have a chance to have a session with him you will not be disappointed but leaving with your body and mind relaxed and revitalized. -- Chad H.

This was a short notice massage appointment that Leo accommodated to alleviate some pain in my shoulder. His work is terrific and he was very polite, thoughtful, careful and attentive to the difficult spots. Looking forward to being a long term client!

Leo was warm, welcoming, and professional in a way that put me at ease. As someone who is recovering from a back injury, I appreciated his calm, intuitive approach coupled with good communication about his approach to the massage and my needs regarding pressure. I felt well cared for, and I will definitely return for future massages with him.
